7:04 am
company on life support but dimon admits jpmorgan's credibility has taken a hit. word that a complex trade reminiscent of those that contributed to the financial crisis went bad at jpmorgan and caused the bank's stock to plummet more than 9% on friday and wiping out $15 billion in shareholder value and sparking memories of the 2008 bank bailout that put taxpayers on the hook for $700 billion. michigan senator carl levin leads the committee that investigated the financial crisis. >> these are the kind of bets that put us into the soup to begin with. >> reporter: in 2010, congress passed dodd/frank to rein in wall street risks but the terms of that law are still being negotiated and there is intense lobbying from the financial industry to water it down. critics argue that each when the law is in place, banks will find a way around the new rule and it
7:05 am
still won't be enough to stop risky trading. however, some republicans are concerned that too much regulation could stifle economic growth. others like tennessee senator bob corker areinow calling for a hearing into jpmorgan's losses. in the meantime, there's growing concern this is just the beginning of more problems for the financial industry. >> jpmorgan chase and jamie dimon are the brightest guys in the room. if they have this problem, god knows how many other people have this problem and this could leted us back to where we were in 2008. >> reporter: but not every bank engages in the type of practices that led to jpmorgan's massive loss. in order to take that level of risk, a bank must be large enough and have access to significant capital and some of the other banks which fit that description are citi, bank of america, and wells fargo. >> with us from newton, massachusetts, is elizabeth warren, a democratic senate candidate in that state. she chaired the degree of
7:06 am
medical oversight panel for the bank bailout. good morning. >> good morning. >> good to see you. >> it's good to see you. >> what do you hope is the fallout from this in terms of regulatory action? >> well, i'd like to see some real accountability here. i'd like to see jamie dimon, for example, resign from his position as a class a director of the new york federal reserve bank. you know, what has happened here is not just about jpmorgan chase, it's about the kind of attitude that the banks should be regulating themselves rather than have real oversight. and so the way i see this is that we have to say as a country, no, the banks cannot regulate themselves. they are financial institutions that run the risk of taking down everyone's job, run the risk of taking down everyone's pension, run the risk of taking down the
7:07 am
entire economy, and that means it's appropriate to have some government oversight. notwithstanding the fact that we are just coming out of this huge crisis, jamie dimon has been the one who has led the charge in order to say, no, no more regulation, fight back against regulation, call the regulation un-american, and resist, try to put loopholes into the regulation, hire an army of lobbyists. >> jamie dimon. >> this has got to is to be. >> jamie dimon yesterday said he supported 75% of dodd/frank which was the principle regulation to come out. >> what we have to remember is dodd/frank itself was a compromise. now what has happened is that the large financial institutions led by jamie dimon have gone after the regulators, they kind of moved it from open war fare to guerrilla war fare and gone after the regulations and tried
7:08 am
to delay them and put loopholes in them. they have tried to tangle them up. they have done everything they can to stick with the idea that it should be the banks that manage their risks, that the banks are the ones who can regulate themselves and there is no need for anyone from the outside looking at them. and i think that is just fundamentally wrong. >> what is wrong -- >> it's wrong and it's dangerous. >> what regulation would have prevented jpmorgan from making this kind of trade? >> well, you know, we have to start, charlie, i say partly. we don't know all of the details about this trade, but i'm going to start with the basic proposition. banking should be boring. banking should not be the kind of high-risk activity. that is what glass segal was all about. banking accounts and checking accounts and so so should be one kind of activity and it should be boring and not taking on risks. if you want to take on those
7:09 am
risks you need to be somewhere else. you need to be a wall street hedge fund, go do that but keep a separation between those two. >> you'd like to see them -- >> you'd like to see those separated? would you also like to see the banks themselves broken up into smaller entities? >> it's a real question about how we are going to deal with the risks that the banks put forward right now. the larger the financial institutions, the more risk it carries for the entire country. and the irony is that i was here talking about the risk posed by the largest financial institutions in 2008 and 2009. we talked about too much concentration in the banking industry and now here we are in 2012 with more concentration in the banking industry. the bigs have gotten bigger and that is a danger. >> should jamie dimon have witnessed resignations on the part of the people responsible according to what is in the
7:10 am
papers this morning? is that enough for you or are you still insisting that he leave the new york fed as a director? >> well, i think the importance of jamie dimon leaving the new york fed is that it's a public acknowledgment that he is in a position of trust. right now, he holds the position -- think about this with the new york fed, in which he is advising the new york fed about the appropriate oversight of banks like his bank, and i think one way he takes responsibility for what has gone wrong is to resign from that position and say someone else should be in that public position, but that he should not be in it. i just think that's one way to try to get a little more accountability into the system. when something happens like what has happened at jpmorgan chase, someone needs to be accountable and part of that is jamie dimon should withdraw -- he should resign from his position of

public tryst. >> elizabeth warren, thank you for joining us this morning. >> thank you. good to see you. >> thank you. in the race for the white house, president obama support for same-sex marriage is pushing the campaign in a new direction. in a just released cbs news/"the new york times" poll, 38% of americans say they now believe same-sex couples should be allowed to get married. 24% think they should form a civil union and 33% against any legal recognition at all. for some perspective here, the number who are in favor of same-sex marriage is 10% higher than it was in 2004. as jan crawford reports, the expected republican nominee took up the issue over the morning. jan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to our viewers on the west. romney has built his campaign on improving the economy. that is what voters say is the number one issue in this election. but this weekend he made a little different talk. he gave the commencement speech at liberty university and he sought common ground with social conservatives by talking about his faith and his values.
7:12 am
speaking to a crowd that has been somewhat skeptical of his mormon faith, mitt romney took on a key issue for social conservatives. >> marriage is a relationship between one man and one woman. >> reporter: that has been his position and in his weekend speech to liberty graduates, romney also stressed his religious values. >> and one of the causes justice for the persecuted, compassion for the needy and the sick, or mercy for the child waiting to be born, fls there is no greater force in the good for the nation than christian conscientious in action. >> rick santorum urged him to go further and saying president obama doesn't get it. >> this is a very potent weapon, if you will, for governor romney if he is willing to step up and take advantage of a president who is very much out of touch with the values of america.
7:13 am
>> reporter: two news magazines are touting the president's decision but a gallup "usa today" poll taken after his announcement showed 60% of americans say it won't affect their vote but it has had an impact on the obama campaign's fund-raising. donations reportedly have increased even before george clooney opened his hollywood home last week. other politicians also are weighing in. sunday during a commencement address at the university of north carolina, new york city marp michael bloomberg took issue with the tar heel state's recent vote. >> i would argue last week's referendum banning same-sex marriage shows just how much more work needs to be done to ensure freedom and equality for all people. >> reporter: and speaking at the iowa faith and freedom coalition, senator rand paul took a shot at the president's new position. >> call me cynical but i wasn't sure that his views on marriage could get any gayer. >> reporter: public support for same-sex marriage jumped up about five or six years ago but this is interesting in our
7:14 am
polling. it hasn't changed much since then. 38% support it now but that's what it's been the past few years. >> with us is haley barbour. welcome. >> thank you, charlie. >> how do you think this cuts politically and should governor romney as rick santorum hasizinged go harder on it? >> first of all, no question. you're on the right question. politically. this is about politics. and the gay lobby, homosexual groups and democratic party are very powerful. >> not about politics about the people who want to get married? it's very much about politics for barack obama. even "the new york times" today called it politically charged and so that's what this is about. how is it going to cut? very interesting to how the gay groups look at president obama saying, well, i'm for homosexual marriage but we ought to let the states decide, we will let it be
7:15 am
a state's right to issue. i think that would be very unpopular among those groups. >> is it a difficult thing for the governor because, on the one hand, he wants to stress the economy. and, on on the other hand, is getting a lot of pressure from rick san tore 'em aum saying tha winning issue for you. if a winning issue. >> the best thing for is for the republicans to be referendum on obama's record. economic and jobs the policies he has put in place and how the policies have failed. the american people recognize that. that's why we have got 60% of the people in the country think it's going in the wreck direction and think the economy is worse than that. that is what we want to focus on. that's what romney should want to focus on. when the president makes a big deal out of an issue the candidate has to set out his position which i thought he did very well. >> he said after thoughtful consideration he decided what impact was important for him to
7:16 am
say at the moment. >> you're talking about president obama? >> yes. >> i meant that romney set out his position very well in opposition to that but i don't think it has to be loud. i don't think it has to be harsh. there's a very clear difference of opinion here. and most states in this country have had referendum on this and have voted overwhelmingly, as north carolina did, to honor marriage as a union between one man and one woman as we have done for thousands of years in the world, not just in america. >> let's just talk one minute. you've been speaking about bob bobby behindal. do you think he is a great running mate no romney? >> it's too early. the next question should be answered after you get a chance to look a whole lot more information and what states are going to be really close. bobby jindal is a great governor and he as smart as a whip put it's way too early to be asking
7:17 am
that question. >> even if it's too early what are the important things to look for in that person? the states where they need to win or is there more to it? >> this person qualifies to be president of the united states. could this person if the president were to die, heaven forbid, could this person come in and be a good president? the political decisions come after that and they are, you know, the hypocritic rule, do no harm. charlie and i were around in 1972 when mcgovern picked a running mate he had to give back. secondly, is there a state, a big state which wouldn't otherwise carry that this person might help you carry? lyndon johnson is a perfect example. >> jack kennedy. >> when kennedy picked lyndon johnson and gave him texas. there are a number of decisions but to pick a vice president and think it's a game-changer, that would be highly unlikely and unusual. >> yes or no. this race now is about dead each?
7:18 am

simple fact there was no risk capital at the depths of the great recession that would have been put into what was viewed as a pretty risky investment at the time. >> what do you think of governor romney's position that the bailout was wrong? >> well, you know, there was a wise man named ronald reagan who once said there's no limit to what a man can accomplish if he's willing to share the credit. words to that effect. and when you step back and look at the bailout, there were two separate presidents, president bush and president obama, two treasury secretaries, two administrations, that saw the wisdom of how important this industry was to america and its economy. we comprised between -- the automotive industry comprises about 3% to 3.5% of the total gdp of this country. to have essentially ceded the basic infrastructure, manufacturing infrastructure of this country, and this industry,
7:43 am
i think would have been a very short-sighted decision. >> so when will you be able to pay back? >> well, you know, we paid back all of our loans. we've paid back our preferred. and we've essentially taken company public and the government owns about 27%. they're one of 50 odd thousand shareholders. >> this isn't something the government wants to do long term. >> i don't think it is. when they sell like any shareholder it will be at their discretion. >> general motors today is a healthy company? >> i think it was properly described. we had a very good year. we're a growth company again. we had $135 million in sales in 2010 and we had 150 plus billion in 2011. that's up 15 billion in one year and we had profits that exceeded any year in general motors history the 103-year history of general motors. pretty good year. >> charlie brought up governor

you take a look at the tone the defense is really going to start with today, as charlie said it's going to be all about the law. any kind of benefit that she could bring to this by defending john edwards, i think the jurors are going to say, well, she's the father of his child. he's supporting her. they may question her credibility. i would say absolutely not. i would be shocked if she took the stand. >> and he? >> this is so tough. we talk about this, you know, the normal, very few defendants take the stand, but last thursday when the prosecution put that 20-minute video, the interview that originally aired on abc. >> yeah. where he denied, denied, denied. >> right. even though that really, much of it had nothing at all with the issues of the trial, it showed him to be less than honest, but i think what's interesting today is one of the witnesses that may take the stand today is harrison hickam, and harrison, two years ago, went on the round of talk
